Open Heaven 11 May 2018 Friday – SPIRITUAL SENSITIVITY

Open Heaven 11 May 2018 Memorise: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angles unawares. Hebrews 13:2

Read: 1st Corinthians 2:9-16 Open Heaven 11 May 2018

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Message – Open Heaven 11 May 2018 Friday Daily Devotional

In the physical realm, sensitivity can be viewed from the perspective of a deep feeling of love and compassion for a person, which usually translates to a commensurate level of understanding for that person’s needs, leading to appropriate actions being taken in that person’s interest. In the spiritual realm however, sensitivity is a quality of life generated by the spirit of God. It the ability to perceive and respond to the call of God or the spiritual demands of the moment. A lack of spiritual sensitivity affects the physical and spiritual wellbeing of God’s children and must be avoided at all costs. Beginning from today, your spiritual antennae will begin to receive heavenly signals in the Name of Jesus. Concerning spiritual sensitivity, 1st Corinthians 2:14 says,

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

From this verse, we understand that spiritual sensitivity is a grace that comes from living under the control of the Holy Spirit. Are you spiritually sensitive?

Open Heaven 11 May 2018 Friday

In Isaiah 11:3b, the Holy Spirit painted a picture of our spiritual nature, which is fashioned after Christ, saying:

“…and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears.”

Our Lord Jesus Christ manifested this nature in John 4:17-19 and in several other passages of the gospels. Because we are fashioned after Him, we ought to walk as He walked.  Spiritually sensitivity was Jesus’ lifestyle, and so, any Christian that is not spiritually sensitive will not walk in the reality of the abundant life that he or she processes.  Without spiritual sensitivity, a person is bound to depend on suspicion, natural intelligence, educational awareness and the natural senses. These are all deficient in receiving the things of God. Without spiritual sensitivity, Abraham would have missed his blessing and the opportunity to save Lot and his family from destruction (Genesis 18:1-33), Samson’s parents would have missed a wonderful chance of a lifetime (Judge 13:3-25), and the great Prophet Samuel would have anointed the wrong person as king over Israel (1st Samuel 16:4-13). When decisions are made based on physical evidence alone, no matter how incontrovertible the evidence may seem, there is still always the possibility of miscarriage of Justice. This has wrongly sent people to prison and even death. I pray that your spiritual sensitivity will become sharpened today in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 11 May 2018 Friday Hymn

Sing hymn 15 – NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee;

E’ en though it be a cross

That raiseth me,

Still all my song shall be

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee.

 

Though, like a wanderer

The sun gone down,

Darkness comes over me,

My rest a stone;

Yet in my dreams I’d be

Nearer, my God, to Thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee

Nearer to Thee.

 

There let me see the sight,

An open heaven;

All that thou sendest me,

In mercy given;

Angles to beckon me

Nearer, my God, to Thee

Nearer, my God, to Thee

Nearer to Thee

 

Then, with my walking thoughts

Bright with Thy praise,

Out of my stony griefs

Bethel I’ll raise,

So by my woes to be

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer, my God, to Thee,

Nearer to Thee

  • This topic is awesome. It emphasize the importance of the Holy Spirit. As Christians we cannot do without Him because we will be guided in every spheres of our life’s to succeed on earth and above all to inherit the kingdom of God.Pray to have it,never to loose it and for restoration peradventure you have lost it.Bless you all in Jesus name.

  • This Is An Awesome Message 4 Morning Devotion,I Believe Dis Topic Gives Me More Morale To B Spiritually Sensitive And More Caring To Strangers.Thanks To U Baba For D Tangible Word Of Today (Open Heavens).

  • AS CHRISTIANS WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE OUR LIVES BY GUESSING. AS WE GO PHYSICAL FITNESS ACTIVITIES (exercising); WE SHOULD ALSO GO SPIRITUAL FITNESS ACTIVITIES SUCH AS FASTING, PRAYING IN TONGUES, PRAYING WITH UNDERSTANDING, STUDYING THE SCRIPTURES, MEDITATING ON THE SCRIPTURES TO DIGEST WHAT HAS BE READ.

    AS WE DO THE AFOREMENTIONED SPIRITUAL FITNESS ACTIVITIES REGULARLY IT WOULD BE VERY EASY FOR US TO THE WILL AND THE MIND OF GOD AT ALL TIMES

    DON’T ONLY CONCENTRATE ON PHYSICAL FITNESS; PAY ATTENTION TO SPIRITUAL FITNESS TOO.

    SHALOM!
